I just can’t get the EZRain utility to work by itself. I first have to load the Houselinc Desktop program then load EZRain and then everything is fine. I have been able to get/store zone times, create timers and test their execution. For me this work around is ok.
Maybe it’s the DirectX. I can’t test it, because both my machines have DirectX on them, and it is not readily removable. Maybe someone else can check this out. I do know that when the PLC is connected to either computer, they fail the dxdiag, but pass when the PLC is disconnected.
Whatever the problem is, the Houselinc software somehow gets around it.
